    connect to windows share

    I have installed a very minimal debian system, and need to connect to a windows share. I keep getting an error: Cannot display location "<path>". The default action does not support this protocol.

    My guess is that I need an important package to allow the action. I have tried samba samba-common smbclient smbfs smbnetfs but none of that has made a difference. Any ideas?

    I have also tried from a shell:
    mount -t //remotehost/share /mnt/mountpoint -o username=domain\username,password=password

    and I am given: mount error 13: permission denied

    I have exhausted every idea I can google. Since permission is denied, is there some kind of authentication package I need to communicate with my windows domain? I would have thought the domain\username would be sufficient, but with my limited knowledge of linux in general I could easily be wrong about that...

    Any ideas would at least give me something else to try...
